Risk and Return

The return earned on investments represents the marginal beneﬁt of investing.

Risk represents the marginal cost of investing.

For any project to create value, the marginal beneﬁt must exceed the marginal cost of investing.

Project or asset risk

In general, the risk of investing in any project or holding any asset consists of two components:

Undiversiﬁable risk (systematic risk, market risk)

Only systematic risk is priced in the market.

This is the only type of risk that is relevant for capital budgeting or asset valuation.

Beta is one way to measure the systematic risk of an asset.

Diversiﬁable risk (unsystematic risk, idiosyncratic risk, or unique risk)

Investors do not care about unsystematic risk because it can be diversiﬁed away very cheaply.

Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

E(R i ) = R f + β i [E(R m R f )]

Only beta changes from one security to the next. For that reason, analysts classify the CAPM as a single-factor model, meaning that just one variable explains diﬀerences in returns across securities.

The Security Market Line

Plots the relationship between expected return and betas In equilibrium, all assets lie on this line

If stock lies above the line:

Expected return is too high Investors bid up price until expected return falls

If stock lies below the line:

Expected return is too low Investors sell stock, driving down price until expected return rises

Beta

β i = σ im

m

The numerator is the covariance of the stock with the market.

The denominator is the market’s variance.

In the CAPM, a stock’s systematic risk is captured by beta.

The higher the beta, the higher the expected return on the stock.

Beta And Expected Return

Beta measures a stock’s exposure to market risk

The market risk premium is the reward for bearing market risk:

R m R f

E(R i ) = R f + ß [E(R m ) – R f ]

• bearing Return for no

Calculating Expected Returns

E(R i ) = R f + β i [E(R m R f )]

Assume

Riskfree rate = 2% Market risk premium = 6%

 If Stock’s Beta Is Then Expected Return Is 0 2% 0.5 5% 1 8% 2 14%

When Beta = 0, The Return Equals The Risk-Free Return When Beta = 1, The Return Equals The Expected Market Return

Alternatives To CAPM

Arbitrage Pricing Theory

R i R f = β i1 (R 1 R f )+β i2 (R 2 R f )+β i3 (R 3 R f

Fama-French Model

.+β in (R n R f )

R i R f = α + β i1 (R m R f ) + β i2 (R small R big ) + β i3 (R high R low )

Betas represent sensitivities to each source of risk. Terms in parentheses are the rewards for bearing each type of risk.

The Current State of APT

Investors demand compensation for taking risk because they are risk averse.

There is widespread agreement that systematic risk drives returns.

You can measure systematic risk in several diﬀerent ways depending on the asset pricing model you choose.

The CAPM is still widely used in practice in both corporate ﬁnance and investment-oriented professions.
